I've been saying for some time that there is an optimum number of friends that are manageable on social networks. Realistically, having anything more than 200 Facebook friends makes scrolling through the various feeds almost a full time job. Many of them mean little of nothing to you and you will skip over them to get to the important stuff. Damned time consuming, isn't it? Now, add Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram and, what used to be a fun exercise, is starting to turn into a full time job. Slim is a new iOS social media productivity application that filters the important updates from your social networks and feeds them to you in one single page. This will save copious amounts of time many of us that feel as if we are nailed to our computers.
Slim discovers the most important updates from your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram - with more social networks to be added - so you can save time and never miss out on the important stuff ever again. Slim features a simple and secure process that sorts through your social networks and discovers the most important events such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, childbirths, new jobs and many more. Slim gives you personalized alerts from all your networks using an intuitive method of filtering your social networks by specific keywords and delivers them to you in one posting. You can update all your networks at once and post to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn simply and efficiently, all from one place. You can customize your feed to receive more or less updates from your contacts. Keep up with popular stories by viewing the most liked and commented posts, pictures and tweets so you never miss out again on the important stuff. Slim sends daily updates to your app or email so you don't miss important events in your colleagues, friends and family's lives.
TechCrunch described Slim as a “good way to stay on top of what’s happening (in your social networks) even when you haven’t had time to check yourself”. This innovative and easy to use iPhone application goes someway to solving our information overload problem. Slim keeps you in touch with the stuff that you need to know from your favorite social networks, leaving you to check the rest on your own. It finds and alerts you to things like birthdays and anniversaries from your closest friends. Unlike the many other filters available, Slim differs slightly in that it is geared towards the business user and is designed so that you never miss that important Tweet or Status Update ever again.
